Description

I am happy to invite you to my Kingston upon Thames studio for short individual or small group workshops/courses on how to make leather bags and other leather accessories. You can make a pretty leather accessory for yourself or as a handmade gift for loved ones). Please, see my listings for the full range of available workshops. All items can be personalised. This particular workshop is for individuals willing to explore and try various essential leatherworking skills a bit deeper (as it is a full 2-day course). This course will provide you with an opportunity to test leathercraft, but also create an elegant yet practical bag. You will have a chance to choose from a range of coloured leathers and edging to customize your own bag. I believe 2 days course is an excellent choice for enthusiasts which might provide you with an excellent hobby. Actually, I started my path as a leathersmith and a bag designer from a 2-day bag making class as well.) The size of the bag is approximately 18cm x 23cm x 5cm. During this course you will be able to apply and learn the following techniques: - How to work with multiple pattern pieces; - How to cut leather pieces and punch holes for stitching; - How to do saddle stitching and machine stitching; edge-colouring/burnishing; - How to attach rivets, sam browns, magnets, d-rings; - How to attach an internal pocket; - How to print “handmade” logo on hot foil machine; - How to glue with Eco stick. Duration: 2 days (11 hours). Time/Date: Our workshops are available on most weekdays and Saturdays between 10:30-20:00. If you have specific suggestions regarding times/dates, please, message us, and we will try our best to accommodate your preferences. If you have any questions, please, write ))
